After numerous attempts of trying to be popular two best friends decide to come out as lesbians, which launches them to instant celebrity status.

Seduced by their newfound fame, Karma and Amy decide to keep up their romantic ruse.

And yet, like "Awkward." and "Hard Times," there's something oddly compelling about it, even moving.

Because it's only the first episode, a brief synopsis should be sufficient: life-long best friends - the social-climbing, un-ironically named Karma Ashcroft (Katie Stevens) and her gal-pal, the cynical, straight-laced Amy Raudenfeld (Rita Volk) - are a pair of desperate wannabes looking to fit into their liberal-minded, open and socially accepting Austin, Texas, high school, where even they appear to be outsiders desperately looking to join in on the club.

"Faking It" is, of course, MTV's new scripted teen comedy series, following the unwanted departure of "The Hard Times of RJ Berger" and on the heels of the wildly popular "Awkward." (the best scripted comedy series MTV has put out in the last four years and which I sadly suspect may be on its way off the air and into television oblivion once this new season is up).

Like everything else MTV, "Faking It" is comic, edgy trashiness of the first degree; in the 21st century, comic and edgy trashiness of the first degree is an absolute must for modern television programming, especially when it comes to MTV.
